This has become a favorite in our household – a warm drink that can make you feel cozy yet invigorated. Turmeric is said to be anti-inflammatory, an antioxidant, and may help improve energy and brain function, as well as keeping blood-sugar levels steady. Black pepper helps it absorb into the bloodstream, hence the pinch of black pepper in the recipe. This latte will give that extra boost you need to get through any kind of day (even with kiddos at home).
- Preparation Time: 5 min.

- ½ tsp ground turmeric
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- pinch of black pepper

1Add spices into a mug.
2To froth the milk, if you don’t have a milk frother, put milk into a microwaveable container (I use a glass mason jar).

4Microwave the milk for 30-45 seconds.
5Pour boiling water into the mug over the spices, then pour the frothed milk over it.
